One thought on “The Team

  1. Hello CfAL team! I am working to preserve and promote the artistic legacy of my mother, Dr. Masumi Hayashi ( and I’m wondering if there is a model for artist estates to operate as non-profits, with art education about the artist, as the charitable goal? Actually I’d be interested in hearing about a model for artist estates acting with any set of goals that is approved by the IRS for non-profit status. Is this something you have experience with?
